It's Monday, What are you reading? 5-20-2013

EVERY MONDAY,  Sheila at Book Journey hosts a meme where bloggers share their reading list for the week as what they finished reading the week before.  This is a great way to plan out what you are  reading for the week and to see what others are currently reading. 

Recently read:
I finished this book the week before and went to see the movie last weekend, the book...blah, but I did enjoy the movie. (review will come later)












Put on hold.....
Being that this book is apart of my book club and we decided to not have a meeting this month, I put this book aside in order to catch up with a book discussion on another book. 










Currently reading:
I finally found a read-along for this book!!  It is incredible to be able to have someone to discuss the book with.  Even though I am completely into the story line  I find it great that I have something that "unofficially" holds me accountable to keep a steady pace and complete the book.  









New to the list:
I will not dive deeper into the reasons why I am reading the book, the title is self explanatory.  Currently I am on a quest of "working on myself" and in my previous what am i reading post, I informed you about the financial books I am reading for the month of May.  This is just another book to assist in the "better me" project I am on this summer.    








What are you guys reading for the week?

I've always had mixed feelings about Gatsby, everyone is despicable but there is something about the storyline that kept me reading.

I loved Wicked, but I think like Gatsby you either love it or hate. I hope your book club enjoys it.

Happy reading!

I am curious about The great Gatsby, since I bought the book last Saturday. So it will be interesting to see what you thought of it and why you did not like it.
I am glad you like Game of Thrones and I can imagine how fun it is to discuss this with someone. Good idea.

Kind regards,

Wow, you have some great reads here! I just watched The Great Gatsby this weekend. And George R.R. Martin's books are amazing! Enjoy reading.

Take a look at what I'm reading this week.

I read The Great Gatsby, but I didn't really get that into it... My sister absolutely loves it, though! I have yet to see the movie.

I love A Song of Ice and Fire, have fun reading A Game of Thrones!

The last time I read The Great Gatsby was in high school, which I don't remember a thing about it. I should re-read it. I'm currently reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer.
